Reading is important for babies as much as for young children to help them get to know sounds, words and language, and develop early literacy skills. Children learn to value books and stories and spark their imagination and stimulate curiosity. Reading helps your child's brain, social skills and communication skills develop.
In our centre, we promote
1. Stage Reading. Our teacher / educator will read with individual child base on his / her level. The family is also invited to borrow the books and help child at home. Our teacher will follow up and provide the correct level books.
2. Story Reading. Our centre has stored lots of books, we encourage parents to borrow books and reading for children at home.
New studies suggest that babies remember music they listened to in the womb for up to four months after being born! Lots of mothers have experienced their unborn baby move when they hear sounds, especially music. In America, scientists proved that children are already very talented and sensitive learners before age 7. 1st Impressions ELC's music curriculum aims improve children’s memory, focus, emotional control and stress resistance.

ARTS AND CRAFTS
Our centre is filled with crafts, activities and printables to help engage children in the classroom. Our arts and crafts go alongside themes and literature resources and most of them celebrate Australia's Central and Aboriginal culture and festivals.
At 1st Impressions ELC, we believe that children who are actively involved and invested in art process the world around them and express their interpretations in a creative way, promoting confidence, problem solving, patience, determination and retain and recall information at a higher rate.
BAKING AND COOKING
At 1st Impressions, we don't really mind getting our faces floury, fingers sticky, aprons mucky and bench tops messy!
We introduce children to making wholesome, nutritious meals, to help them develop a healthy relationship with food that can last them a lifetime. We aim to instill healthy eating habits through cooking and baking and give our children the best opportunity to grow into healthy, confident adults.
